KING: So how does it go from that to you are now nose to nose with police officers?
EVANS: I'll be honest, I just felt the urge to just walk into the street. And I just—I needed to see them. I needed to see the officers. I needed to see their faces.
KING: So Ieshia, you just walk in the street even though you're told not to walk in the street? And you stand nose to nose and you don't say anything?
KING: And what are they saying to you?
EVANS: Nothing. It was silence. It was just—it was a lot of nonverbal communication.
KING: What did you want your silence to say?
EVANS: I'm human. I'm a woman. I'm a mom. I'm a nurse. I could be your nurse. I could be taking care of you. You know? Our children could be friends. We all matter. We don't have to beg to matter. We do matter.
